Good info. Helped me determine the ACTUAL year of the quad my son bought.

They didn't help at all with my older Big Bears.  Got the most info from VIN View /// AnalogX along with a good breakdown of what each element of the VIN stands for.

Great  Thanks,  maybe now will be able to find out exact info on quad.  Just knew it was a Yamaha Grizzly 600, but not sure of year and looks like some differences.

 Vin# is located on the left side frame rail. Find the frame rail below the shift lever, follow that rail forward to where it goes up the wheel well. Get down low and look up behind the wheel well at the frame rail.

Sometime when it’s bad like that I lightly sand the area with a 220 grit paper and then put a piece of  paper from my printer over the number and run a pencil really fast back and forth over the vin # and it transfers onto the paper.

Should be.  

Manufacturers really don’t chnage the location of the vin#s. For instance my old fourtrax late 90s was on the front of the frame.  My newer rancher 2012 is in the same spot. Same for a few of my bikes.

Ok , I did find it on the frame rail in front of the shifter. The only bad thing is about 3/4 of the numbers are obliterated. Numbers are hard to read but still can make out a good many of them. They even match up with my Title. Looks like the frame took a hit there at one time.

Maybe wire wheel it and take a white or yellow  crayon and run over the numbers hard.  Wipe the excess off or lightly sand it and take a pic.   Just an idea.

Yeah I'll have to give that a try,  you would think that they'd put the number on top of the frame or put skid plates under it.

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      OK everybody,I need some help here please. My 4 wheeler has got a bad wheel bearing I discovered while starting a brake job. Its on the left side. I've never done one and I need some knowledge how to go about it. Am I to understand I need to pull the whole axle out to do it. I've done it once on a car about 30 years ago,lol. I keep looking around for a repair manual but they're hard to find without having to buy it. I looked here on this site but apparently Im too junior a member to be able to download one right now.Bummer!  One other question if I may.When I pulled the drum off the spindle a torrent of water poured out,the brake shoes were covered in mud along with everything else. I mean the drum had alot of water in it. The shoes were so locked up after I removed the springs I tried to rotate one of the shoes and it wasn't easy at all. I noticed whoever had the machine before myself had laid a bead of RTV around the back plate but apparently it didn't work. Isn't there some kind of gasket for this purpose. I saw it calls for a dust shield but surely this wont keep the brakes dry or will it. Thanks everybody.

      I have a Yamaha YFM225 which sounds really noisy exhaust wise.  It had no baffle so I bought and installed that but it seemed to make no difference.  There are no leaks from the manifold or exhaust but the damm thing just sounds  so loud !

      Here's some pics from within the last month. Rather than build a frame and body from scratch, I drove to Kansas and bought a rust bucket G2 for $40 minus batteries. I've since cut it up in prep for the 1100cc v-twin shaft drive engine. I've included a picture of the of the latest mock-up. Im extending the frame and wheel base 12 more inches and widening the body by 12 more inches as well. I have on order a right side axle shaft and housing for the left side of my ATV rear end. This will widen the axle by about 12 inches. I will be eliminating the front  a-arms and replacing with straight pipe from knuckle to knuckle. I'll post more as it progresses.

      I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?

      Hello boys and girls!:howdy:I need a little help if ya dont mind.I need to replace the rear axle bearings on my 400 but Im going at this blind having never done it before. Ive looked it up in the repair manual but it doesn't give any specific steps on how to do it. I've got the left rear brakes off already as I was replacing the shoes anyway. Can somebody give me a rundown on what Ive gotta do please?I know I need to pull the right wheel off just havent done that yet. Do I need to take anything apart in the final drive or elsewhere in order to yank the axle out for instance? Which side does the axle come out from,L or R? Any details I need to know will be greatly appreciated.Thanks ya'll!

      So I'm trying to figure out the year of one of my Timberwolf's. I have 4.
      2 are definitely 1993's, as I can read the serial number on those.
      1 has to be close to a 93, as the back rack and lug width (156) are the same as the 93's.
      The last one is killing me. Someone painted over the serial number.
      Listed are the differences
      Back rack is different. It goes through the plastics and will pivot on the rear attachment. Doesn't have the handles out the side, either.
      Doesn't have the loops coming out of front plastics.
      Foot rests are different.
      Lug pattern is 110.
      Everything I've read, says that the Timberwolf was produced from 92-98 and then changed name to Bear Tracker. Most parts are interchangeable through those years. Only change I found, was front brakes were upgraded to disk in 2001.

      I just got a 2004 Yamaha that needs some work.Its got wet brakes on the front that Im trying to get working.My problem is the brake lever.This the lever on it now.On the master cylinder it has a cable in it that has the wire that fits in a slot inside the lever itself but this lever isn't made for that.I dont know if whoever had it before didn't know what they were doing or what but its the wrong lever for this machine. Can someone point me in the right direction here? I looked at the Yamaha website and the schematics only show a part that looks like this one here. Again,I have a 2004 Yam 400 Kodiak 4x4 and its an automatic model. BTW,the master cyl. was bone dry. I was gonna change out the rear brake shoes and when I went to pull off the wheel,get this, each wheel stud had 2 different sized washers holding the lug nuts to the wheel rim. The stud holes were so worn out it had worn away the base of the studs and the holes were the size of  quarter! Im lucky someone didn't die while riding this! A word to the wise.Pay attention to what you buy.Look carefully and keep a keen eye out. This was my fault because it was the 1st ATV Id ever bought and I didnt notice alot on this machine so I guess I count myself lucky in that I didnt get hurt nor did anyone else who rode it either.
